    Now that detector has two strikes against going to Jamaica; first it is a detector and second it is in camo clothing!

    It's a fabric self-clinging wrap which leaves zero adhesive as it has no adhesive...it clings to itself.

    You can get it in every colour you can possibly imagine.

    I love the stuff.

    When i come back from the beach i hose my 800 down and the sand etc comes off and the wrap magically stll holds in place.

    I often get bored of black, so sometimes i will unwrap it, store it on a rilling pun and change colour...lol.

    I can understand getting bored with black. But no camo for me until you can locate your MD with an app.
    So...why don't companies offer different colors other than cost. Shake things up a little

    I know it sounds silly, but I wrapped mine with bondage tape first. It has no adhesive. Then taped over that.

    Yeh.....my detector has bondage tape, hockey stick tape, and wears pantyhose.

    After that wrap, you’re going to need a silver quarter on a stick to locate the detector in tall grass. Lol!

    Like I said, wasn't after looks. The pantyhose covers the screen, and I don't go blind in the sun. The hockey tape is a cheap shot at keeping me from scarring the coil cable. The bondage tape is underneath and not visible.

    Hmm, not so sure, now that I look at it closer. To me it looks like spray on truck bed liner.

    It is camo tape. You use it on the Minelab metal detectors to keep the targets from disappearing on you when digging. Actually works well with any detectors but especially well on the nox 800.

    How does tape keep the targets from disappearing, exactly?

    BTW this thread is hilarious...
